Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden, Srinagar

Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden

Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden is one of the recent additions to the multitude of tourist attractions in Srinagar. It was established in 2006-07, by covering a sprawling area of 29.6 acres that made it the largest tulip garden across the continent of Asia. This seemingly endless green patch of land is dotted with about 20 lakh flowers, which include several varieties of tulips. The eye-soothing verdure and blossoming tulips lend immense scenic beauty to this garden. What adds to the charm of this garden is its picturesque backdrop that includes the majestic Zabarwan and the beautiful Dal Lake.

Tulip Festival is organised at this site in March, April every year, when tulip flowers are in their full bloom. This popular event is hosted by the floriculture department of the state government. During this flower festival, several cultural programmes as well as exhibitions of local handicraft and cuisine are organised.
